Financial Services


Financial services companies face a strictly regulated environment and have to be able to respond promptly to regulatory change and market constraints while remaining agile enough to meet the needs of their consumers. We understand the ins and outs of this industry, and combined with our experience and expertise, our lawyers can offer comprehensive and considered counsel.


We have acted for existing and newly formed financial institutions, asset managers, investment funds, investment banks and other financial services companies in relation to the structuring, formation and sale of a wide range of diverse and frequently reimagined assets.


Our lawyers in the Financial Services sector work closely with lawyers in other practice areas of the firm, including corporate restructuring and insolvency, corporate finance and tax, to achieve the most informed and best results for our clients.


Our services in the Financial Services sector include:

  • Establishment by way of incorporation, organization and registration of financial services businesses (banks, loan companies, finance companies, fund managers, brokers and other financial services entities)
  • Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures
  • Private and public debt and equity financings
  • Amalgamations, arrangements, restructurings and investments
